Meget interessant artikel om noget, der interesserer mange for tiden. Det primære budskab er, at naturlig immunitet er (mindst) lige så god som vaccinens, og at det ikke giver mening at vaccinere dem, der har været ramt af COVID-19.
Men der er masser af gode ting i artiklen. Vidste du fx, at vaccine betyder “fra køer”?
In the 18th century, milkmaids were considered “fair of face, the prettiest girls in all the land.” Unlike others, they did not have the common face scars from smallpox infection. Through their close contact with cows, they were exposed to and infected by cowpox, a mild disease that generates immunity to smallpox. In 1774, a Dorset farmer named Benjamin Jesty purposely inoculated his wife and two sons with cowpox, and vaccines were born (the Latin vaccinus = “from cows”).
